Township Trails & Connectivity Plan

Take Part in Developing our first Community-wide Trails & Connectivity Plan for Springfield Township

Trails & Connectivity Plan Presentation October 11, 2023

The Trails and Connectivity Plan was presented to the community at the October 11, 2023 meeting of the Board of Commissioners. The presentation can be viewed below.

Written comments on the draft Trails & Connectivity Plan will be accepted through December 1, 2023. The Board of Commissioners are expected to vote on this plan at their regularly scheduled Business Meeting on December 13th.

Safety, connectivity and walkability are the basis for a recent decision by the Springfield Township Board of Commissioners to undertake a community-wide trail plan. From enhancing pedestrian safety by providing the public with more off-road opportunities to walk, run, and bike, to making it easier to travel to different parts of the Township without a vehicle, trails are increasingly seen as popular public amenities that the entire community may enjoy. Please explore the documents to learn more about the Trails and Connectivity Plan and the proposed trail segments. 

The Springfield Township Trails & Connectivity Plan is intended to outline overarching goals of a Community-wide trail network and identify a list of potential trail projects that Springfield Township could pursue that would maximize connectivity between key destinations, including parks, businesses and neighborhoods, in an equitable manner.
